welcome back. tropical storm hermine is rolling toward carolinas after headaching land fall in florida overnight as a category one hurricane. it was a first time, 11 years florida had been directly hit the by a hurricane. authorities are attributing one fatality to the storm, a homeless man who died, when a tree felon his tent. >> this happened, you know, early this morning. we're in here, with the hurricanes, tropical storm. >> we have the update. we have downgraded from a tropical storm after it moved
12:20 pm
on shore since it lost energy to the gulf of mexico. we are watching it move back out to sea. that is where we could see this upgrade briefly to a hurricane again. we will see what happens. regardless this is an evolving situation so we really advice that we are giving you latest on what we know right now. stick with us. we will see things change, evolve again as we continue modeling coming out and we will get ever closer. that is, of course as you get closer you can pinpoint things more easily. lets she you one more time storm scan three this nice live zoom and a system that started to string itself out here. a lot of heavy rain, significant just broad band of that soaking rain through carolinas and southeastern georgia. this continues to lift north east. as we mentioned earlier at 18 miles an hour. it has, in fact accelerated by a couple miles an hour. meanwhile right now we have tropical storm watches posted for southeastern, delaware, through lower bay and up and down new jersey coastline and
12:21 pm
if your travels take you to long island, hamptons you will deal with tropical storm watches there as well right through the weekend. so that is the story, guys. again, this will be with us, really through the course of saturday, sunday and very likely into monday as well as we track the continued rain threat as well as the continued wind threat. the as we look at the toss built of the rain amounts here, before it is all said and done portions of florida and georgia as it pull as way could have have an inch and a half to two and a half inches. then they are in it for carolinas and through southeastern most delaware and, extreme south east new jersey. because it looks like this will just hug the coastline right now. so that means it could be multiple inches of rain, in a couple of choice communities, and the further in you go, you may end up with a couple of whimpy rain showers, philadelphia i'm talking to you and that is it and you end up with a crummy weekend but not like what you'll see at the shore. it will be a sharp cut off when it comes to wind, when it
12:22 pm
comes to rain and those kinds of major impacts. stick with us. it will be able to be fine tuned county by county as we get closer to this. the sustain wind speeds, these look impressive. we will start off at 10:00 p.m. tonight as we watch the brunt up the coast. look at the eye that may form off of us, there. up we go to the del marva peninsula, southern new jersey where you could have a wind field that extend into portions of central delaware, southeastern new jersey and wind speeds could get as high as 40 or 50 miles an hour. brunt of this is off shore but if you are going near the the shore points, so again, this will be a big concern over the course of the weekend. it will certainly be breezy further inland but still just a chance we will end up with higher wind speeds in the city but they could peak as high as zero to 35 miles an hour perhaps. then by the time we hit tuesday, things are finally winding down with the worst at least of the win. you may not have any to report through southeastern, pennsylvania. so here's a good solid recap of what would be the worst case impact at the shore.
12:23 pm
specifically. wind gusts could peak as high as 55. at worst case you could deal with half foot of rain, just rain, at the shore. so that will easily lead to flooding. and then high surf and that leads to coastal flooding to, and rip currents, beach erosion all of that continuing to be a theme. at least aim not seeing anyone in the water for folks at the shore outside beach patrol headquarters. lovely daze. watch for that rip current risk right now. things do go downhill, as we hit the weekend. stay there we will be right

david was proud to be an american soldier. and i know i'm prejudiced because he was my son, but i don't think he had a mean bone in his body. there is not a day that i don't think about david. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage. "she was standing there, she had nothing to say..." if donald trump cannot respect a gold star family, then why would anyone in america think he would respect them. votevets is responsible for the content of this advertising.
